The Artist & her project

Anne de Vandière

As a French photographer and journalist for written press in the 80s-90s, she has portrayed many figures from the worlds of art and fashion. On the occasion of those encounters, she became aware of the importance of nonverbal communication and notably of the body language of those she interacts with. As a result, as early as 1996 she embarked on a photographic portrait project entitled “H/AND” whose theme was the Hand and which would lead to the publication of 2 books. In 2009, Anne was awarded the Neuflize OBC ABN Amro Prize for contemporary photography.

The Association Tribu/s du Monde

The association Tribu/s du Monde was launched over 10 years ago by Anne de Vandière with the help of black and white analogue photographs, written accounts and videos strives to enhance the tremendous philosophical richness of those peoples, their ancestral wisdom, their know-how relating to their ability with their hands, passed on from one generation to the next, but, above all, to highlight their unique connection to Mother Earth. For her, they are the last guardians of our planet, of our Nature and certainly the last connection to our origins. In Anne’s view, those precious sentinels must foremost live and be respected. Her exhibitions - at Musée de l’Homme in 2017, then at the Domaine des Etangs and at Capucins in Brest - enjoyed the patronage of UNESCO and the support of the association SURVIVAL France

The Circles of Life's Project

From Senegal in 2009 to Oman in 2019, Anne travelled across 5 continents and twenty or so countries to meet over 60 tribes, peoples, ethnic groups and communities.
No picture was taken without consent, nothing was staged: it is all about connections.
For the sale of each picture and thanks to the association TRIBU/S DU MONDE the ethnic groups and tribes will receive a substantial share of the profit.

With her Circles of Life, Anne invites us to share in our everyday lives the ever so strong bond that connects those peoples to Nature.

Everything is in Nature.
And Nature is in everything; in everyone.

We are One and united by Life, the sacred circle. Indeed, if there is an intelligence of Nature, it operates in a circular manner.

Aboriginals from all over the world are aware of this, it is up to us to remember… Losing this ancestral knowledge means losing one’s balance and falling, like a tightrope walker. And yet, living means learning every day, gaining in humility and growing up. We are all children facing the impermanence and the vastness of Life.

Dame Nature is round and curvaceous… She envelops, teaches, surrounds and carries us in her loving maternal arms. She nurtures us and leads us into a wonderful dance of the living, where everything is cycles and roundness. The wheel turns, Life is a perpetual, eternal motion. One cannot dominate or hinder anything; one can only embrace the perfect flow and continue to elevate oneself in order to bequeath

Reconnected to this infinite Source of Love, one is lulled, carried, transported. One grows through hardships too, through experiences and consciousness. Finding the centre of this rising whirlwind means finding one’s own centre in order to find Oneself. Finding oneself means renewing with the harmony of the Great Everything. Everything is in Nature… Everything is Nature. Everything is One. The Everything is the One. Wonderful Creation. Enchantment of Life.

Taking from the Earth? Returning to the Earth? The Earth is a mandala. It is a circle, sacred.

Everything starts in Nature, and everything returns to Nature. One can take only to give back: the balance of the World, of Life depends on this. The Circle of Life.

The beautiful Art of Anne de Vandière conveys this. Everything is unity, related, interconnected. Our Nature demands that we unite and form an alliance in order to take care of everyone. Every ONE. The mandala is of the essence.

You are surrounded and tenderly loved.
